    Phoronix: Ubuntu Studio Will Be Sticking Around As An Official Ubuntu Flavor

    Earlier this month we wrote about the quandary Ubuntu Studio was in, the flavor of Ubuntu shipping with multimedia production and content creation software: none of their active developers had upload rights for updating packages. Fortunately, that situation has now been resolved...

        Nope. Ubuntu Studio is targeted at audio production. It comes with many audio applications and utilities preinstalled and uses a custom low-latency kernel. On Kubuntu you need to configure and install all these things by yourself.

          Then just use the studio applications without bothering about a lick of paint or something...

          🤦

              I didn't realize that "sudo apt-get install the_crap_I_want" was that difficult.

                Good to hear that they were able to resolve this, but seeing how long they went without rights to update their own packages I hope they also resolved the evident lack of management issue that caused farce to begin with.

                  So then you install Ubuntu Studio with all of its tweaks and utilities and you sudo apt install kde on top of it.
                  Problem solved.

                    It is not only audio tools but graphic tools as well including Kdenlive.
                    I've been using it on my laptop for some time now and it is very cool to never get XRUN errors using JACK during long audio recording.
